Memory Lane – song lyric

Standard

Song lyric time and this one has an unusual rhyme pattern in the verses, but I like unusual so here goes:

medium_8594078021

She don’t get out very much

Takes a walk from time to time

Strolls down Single Avenue

Heads for the Love Lost Bar

Thinks about when he was hers

Until she spends her last dime…

 

(chorus)

On a drink to remember

All the things they did

Having one to forget, another to forgive

One more to down the pride

Bitter on her tongue

One to kill the pain

Walking down Memory Lane

 

She heads back home at dawn

Flashes of him in her life

Sends her to Regret Boulevard

Curses herself for being a fool

Knows she can’t find her way home

Back to Deliverance Drive…

 

With a drink to remember

All the things they did

Having one to forget, another to forgive

One more to down the pride

Bitter on her tongue

One to kill the pain

Walking down Memory Lane

 

Bridge:

She wants to let him go

She wants to set him free

But she keeps holding on

To every memory

 

With a drink to remember

All the things they did

Having one to forget, another to forgive

One more to down the pride

Bitter on her tongue

One to kill the pain

Walking down Memory Lane
